Curses, I'd just logged out of the game, but...
 

...+5% aircraft experience.  I may as well open those unique supplies whilst I'm at it. :)

Is that why you only got a Beaufighter V and he got a V IM ??  :unsure:

His most played heavy is Bristol Beaufighter, not surprise he wanted Bristol Beaufighter V. I am playing with handicap, I don t get tokens from battles (till now WG owes me at least 500 tokens :teethhappy:), just if I ve finished some of missions, what means you must think twice will you buy new plain! Usually things like that smell on some former unsatisfied employee who left, but still keep some of root passwords and now is nasty to players and his former company. Because no sense at all, there was no update, nothing, but immediately after I ve published printscreen on which was visibly I had a lot tokens from game, appear bug who check this, affect me and before only some players lol...not all, just some haha. Or it could be WG policy..But it is as it is, that s why just easy :)

There's a reason the regular is the heavy I've played most.  I'm crap at heavies!  I just can't get along with the lack of manoeuvrability and I never seem to be able to identify when or if I should trade altitude for speed correctly.

 

Regarding the token complaint, you should really raise a ticket with WG.  If this is the bug I think it is, you should get a satisfactory response.

Ye ok, but I meant Frantiszek_ most played heavy is Bristol Beaufighter, so it s not surprise he wanted Bristol Beaufighter V. About tokens, no help from support, I rise 3-4 tickets and the only solution according to them is that is no solution. Only if I want to every time do prinscreen of every battle in which missing tokens and every time open ticket and ask for missing tokens, lol.. By the way for 110 games which you will need for this special plain you can grind tech tree Bristol Beaufighter also :)

Same with all missions, you can use them for pilot training, but not to complete nation specific missions.

= tell me if you tried to clear the cache with a command that clears all your settings, changes you made in the game files - it's not about WGC. I know that many times it helps with different things. There is one downside - you have to do the game settings again.

If you haven't done it, I'll send that command tomorrow.

Good idea Frantiszek_ ! I think I did not do with command line here on WoWp, I ve only manual cleared cache before, but after that, did not had to adjust settings like on other WG game, so it probably means it s not same effect! Please send me that command or I ve looked on official WoWp page and download file wowp_cache size 201 bytes, did you think on that file?

Just like they've released the Yak-7 M-82 in the premium shop during Christmas "event".

 

The Yak-7 M-82 is actually worth owning and the grind didn't seem that bad. This is just an excercise in frustration and it's really exposing just how broken the matchmaking is when you see game after game with 4 specials on one team and none on the other (with predictable results)

To start with, if you have MOD, delete it.

Below is the command. Copy from beginning to end:

 

 

cmd /K del /Q /F /S "%APPDATA%\Wargaming.net\World of Warplanes"
 

 


Then on the keyboard press the WINDOWS key and the letter R at the same time.

In the new window that appears in the lower left corner of the monitor, paste the copied command and press OK.

A black box will appear - it will take a while, but it will remove NON-ORIGINAL settings and changes.

When finished, close the window.

It's best if you still in the WGC <==> SETTINGS game WOWP click the CHECK AND REPAIR function. It will take a few minutes, but from time to time I do it myself.

After all, start the game, make the settings again and see if it succeeded.

Probably you're better to give the powershell version of that command these days, Franti.  The command line is a bit old hat.

Holasss.

 

Like almost all the gurus in the game, I have chosen tier 5 for the missions because they are much shorter battles, generally. Less time needed to get plane (one battle was so fast than only one player got 5.000 pp). There, I have met all the great players of this game, almost always against it. Only one with Goner in my team.


Three days to complete 30 wins.


67 battles to complete the 30 victories.

 

First day, full of british planes and 11 victories of 17 battles.


Second and third day, total disaster. Lots of players with American and Russian planes fighting out of bases, destroying bots and rookies (there are a lot of them). If not, they were in the center garrison destroying bots and rookies. Although there were only three bases and on each side were the two Military Bases.


My ranking in the HoF has dropped 1216 places.


Victory condition must be IMPOSED on ALL missions.

 

Saluditos.

 

Note: In one battle, 9 players in my team and 7 with less than 50 battles and the 8th, 256 battles.  Ridiculous get tier 5 - 6 with less than 200 battles. Several players were destroyed and left the game. They don't even know they can respawn. Warganing... do you know what to do? There are many new players and you have to take care of them. If you let them level up so fast, they will meet players who will destroy them too fast and easy and get bored and leave the game. Two weeks ago, tier 10 battle, one player with 62 battles and only 4 planes, 2 premium tier 5, one premium tier 6 and the tier 10. What? Account creation date May 20, 2020. No words.

Thanks, I ve just checked, wowp_cache is different, it s; rmdir /S /Q "%temp%\wargaming.net\wowp". I will try that also! Anyway I try with this what you said and did not worked! Played 2 games, in one game won Akamatsu and McCampbell medals but got only 1 token, (4 got for Daily missions, that worked all time) did not got token for Akamatsu medal. Won also Conquare medal but forgot if you are rewarded with 1 token for that or not. In 2nd game I won Wing legend, Akamatsu again ( did not got token 1st time, so thought maybe will now) and Ace and got only token for Ace. Like that was before, I just get sometimes 1 token (not always like now in 2 games 2 tokens), but rest tokens for rest medals dont get..Now I got 2 tokens instead 4 or 5, that is same bug, still here..

you know that you obtain only 1 token for medal? Not second time. And this dont reset if you are in battle during server restart. Is need finish battle (not only leave to hangar) and exit game before 7AM to obtain medal reset.

No token for Conqueror. Only 15 medal-related tokens per day: Akamatsu, McGuire, Lambert, Efimov, Doolitle (400 cap points for each class), then Thunder and Lang medal (Ground targets). Then u can get AceMarseille, or McCampbell. And also "special ones" as Golubev (3 rocket kills), Gabreski (10 planes, 7 GTs), Kožedub (Squall line 5 kills). + Winged legend and Hero of the sky. - together 15 tokens.

What I whitnessed, even though, u get only one token for each medal per day, kožedub sometimes works more that once. Probably also bug.

About that plane - Beaufighter V. There were theories about its guns... From my point of view, after trying it (even specialising it), it is still very underpowered in comparison to standard Beaufighter. Even with lack of rockets and bombs (and ony 2x20mm guns) it still isn't really balanced with speed, as long as u can play standard Beaufighter in no-ordnance-setup and u will get even slightly better results than with premium one (and u still have much better firepower on that).

 

What was meant to by real difference and improvement beside standard Beaufighter is it's turret. It has much(?) better damage per second, even better that fench SE-100. Similarly to SE-100, u get opportuninty to improve your rear gunner via "service" increasing your firing range with equipent (But still weaker basic firepower, than SE-100) - so u can get on 840m firing range in total (with SE-100 it is over 1km).

 

From my perspective, standard Beaufighter is much better plane and little bit better rear gunner doesn't change that so much. Not useles, just not as good. Probably nothing more that another piece into collection.
